Pools Youth Team return to Youth Alliance League action on Saturday when they host Rotherham United at Welfare Park in Blackhall (11am kick-off).
John Hewitson’s youngsters are fresh from their excellent Youth Alliance Cup quarter-final triumph at Port Vale and will be hoping to take that form in to the clash with The Millers.
Rotherham have enjoyed a strong start to the season and currently sit third in the North East Division table, while Pools’ inconsistencies see them down in twelfth spot.
“We have played well in games but then shot ourselves in the foot by either not taking our chances or conceding daft goals at the other end,” Hewitson admitted.
“Last week at Port Vale we were much more solid and we need more of that type of performance now as we look to climb the table.
“Making the semi-finals of the cup was a massive boost to everyone so we need to take that confidence back in to the league and produce the same kind of display on Saturday.”
We’ll have a full report here on the Official Website on Monday morning.
